Today is the third Saturday of September, and it is Software Freedom Day! SFD for short, is a day dedicated to educate public about software freedom and the benefits of Free and Open Source Software (FOSS).
The objectives of Software Freedom Day are :
- to celebrate software freedom and the people behind it
- to foster a general understanding of software freedom, and encourage adoption of free software and open standards
- to promote constructive dialogue on responsibilities and rights in the information society
- to create more equal access to opportunities through the use of participatory technologies
- to be pragmatic, transparent, and responsible as an organisation
- to be inclusive of organizations and individuals that share our Vision
There will be a lot of activities tomorrow, including Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) demonstration, CD giveaways and FOSS advocacy. You can also have your USB drive loaded with Open Source software for free at the SFD local booth.
Come and celebrate Software Freedom Day with our local Malaysian Team there!
